Introducing OU’s Director of Strategic Technology . . .

“The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” Psalm 126:3
On Wednesday, Dec. 1st, Chris started his new position at OU as the Director of Strategic Technology for Recruitment Services. I thought it’d be fun to capture a “1st day of work” pic much like I will when Alexa heads out the door for her 1st day of school. I do believe he was just about as excited as a child heading to kindergarten for the 1st time. Doesn’t he look snazzy!?
It’s been an exciting journey to see God work all things together for His glory and Chris’ good concerning his career path. If you haven’t heard the story of how the Lord created this position for Chris – we’d love to tell you. It’s just another opportunity to testify of the Lord’s continued and undeserved goodness and faithfulness in our lives.

One scripture that came to mind when this opportunity was presented to Chris was Luke 6:38, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” I truly believe the Lord poured out blessings of favor upon Chris because his desire is to seek and follow Christ wholeheartedly – whether it’s in our home, in ministry, in graduate school, or at work. He’s not one to keep up with pretense. He simply does his work unto the Lord and finds contentment in serving Him. For Chris, it’s never been about titles, money, or climbing a corporate ladder. It’s about living out God’s will each and every day – trusting and obeying. I know . . . I’ve watched him walk with Jesus for over five years. And, I also believe his employers at OU saw the same thing.
I’m so thrilled for Chris because this job affords him the opportunity to go to a job that he loves and serve in ways he is specifically gifted. Isn’t God good to give His children blessings that far exceed their expectations!? I look forward to seeing how God will use Chris in this new and challenging position . . . it’s going to be an adventure Chris will eagerly embrace.

”Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.” Psalm 128:1-2
